As the story goes, this church was in need of a staircase to the 2nd story balcony but there wasn't anyone capable to build such a thing; the church was all women. The balcony is very tall and the church quite narrow. One day, a kind man came with a few hand tools and offered to build them a staircase. He worked for months on this one piece of wood. When it was finished (without the railing in the original form) he left, not accepting payment and never to return. The story goes that it was an angel sent by God, just for this church. The wood is not from this part of the country and the design is so intricate as well as once piece of wood, the mystery still stands. It was a sight to behold. Quite beautiful. Who really knows the story behind the Loretta Chapel, but a miracle? Oh yes, God still does wonders for His people today.
